Do you have a book out?  Hype yourself shamelessly here.  Do you want to
have a book out?  Do you think if only you just sat down at the computer and
typed for a day or two you'd inevitably produce a masterpiece?  Tell us all
about it.

Guess how many books I have in print?  Go ahead, guess.  Here's what I just
love:  I'm at a party, someone with a patronzing air asks me what I do.  I
say, with false self-deprecation, "I'm a, um, writer."  "Oh," they say,
"And have you ever had anything published?"

Hahahahaha.

Rather than "unpublished" I've heard "prepublished" author ...

Ah.  Sort of parallel to "preorgasmic" in the sex-therapy realm.

I'm thrilled that the local public television station is considering
my books and cards as subscriber giveaways. 

I like it, I luv it, I want some more of it!

"pre-orgasmic" -- I love it!

Donna - I'm not sure, but if your publisher of your books and cards consider
the giveaways "special sales" and you check your contract, you may find that
you might earn 2% royalties ... I don't know.  That sometimes happens --
it did with me with a book club that picked up my book:  the publisher
earned back printing costs but I didn't make much on that angle myself.

Not that I wish to rain on your parade, not at all.  Just FYI.

I have 2 (coauthored) books and 8 recordings in print.

Woops, actually one of the books has gone out of print, i think.

Seven?  Moi?  There are two editions of "Playing in the Band," and one long-
since-deleted Talking Heads title from Avon, but that wouldn't be in there.
Hmmmmm...

<looking at Amazon.com>  I am not responsible for the math books, nor the one
called "Biology of the Reptilia."  However, I do occasionally play in a
venerable garage band called The Reptiles.

"Sonoran Desert A to Z", the title I produced last year, is listed
with Amazon.com. But "Little Lords of the Desert" isn't on their site
yet. You can find it at the BarnesandNoble.com site.
